Big Screen a Star Act
for Pacific Pearl
P&O Cruises has announced that its latest superliner, Pacific Pearl, will feature a giant entertainment screen on its pool deck, giving passengers a great new way to enjoy their cruise holiday.
Stretching seven metres wide and four metres high, the state-of-the-art LED “Big Screen” is a first for the cruise line and headlines a series of exciting drawcards planned for Pacific Pearl, which will be launched in December this year.
Ann Sherry, CEO of Carnival Australia, which operates P&O Cruises, said Pacific Pearl would give passengers more choice than ever before.
Ms Sherry said the Big Screen would create the opportunity for poolside fun day and night, showcasing everything from sports events, latest release movies and scenic destination images to P&O Cruises’ own daily TV show.
In another first for the cruise line, she will give her passengers a new way to soak up the sun and relax while on holiday with a Swim Up Bar in one of her two pools.
“P&O Cruises is the only cruise line operating in Australia and New Zealand which proudly offers a product specifically designed for the local market, from the features each of our ships provides through to our fantastic entertainment and cuisine,” Ms Sherry said.
“Every one of our ships – Pacific Jewel, Pacific Dawn, Pacific Sun and soon Pacific Pearl – offers our passengers something a little different while delivering the fun, carefree P&O Cruises’ holiday Australians and New Zealanders love.”
Other key features of Pacific Pearl, which will be refurbished in Singapore in November, include:
The Dome lounge – offering sweeping 270-degree ocean views over the ship’s bow.
Salt Grill by Luke Mangan – a huge hit on Pacific Dawn and Pacific Jewel.
The Orient – a new pub-style bar with a name that recalls the traditional days of sailing on the Orient Line.
The Oasis – positioned at the ship’s stern, this retreat gives passengers the perfect location to catch some sun, relax and watch the ship’s wake.
Pacific Cirque – aerial circus performances on the ship’s top deck using a spectacular acrobatic arch, which spans the ship’s width.
The Atrium – the hub of the ship will be stylishly refurbished with new shopping outlets and a range of bars and lounges.
Mix Cocktail Bar – new on deck six with windows overlooking the ocean, the bar will be a great spot for espresso coffee by day and drinks by night, with live piano music setting the mood.
The Café – Australians’ love of good coffee and chocolate has been recognised with the creation of The Café on deck 12, offering espresso coffee, refreshing drinks and gourmet chocolates for passengers to enjoy poolside.
